Obituary for Donna M. Schmitz

Donna M. Schmitz, 64, of Shelby passed away February 24, 2020 at OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital after a short illness.

Donna was born December 5, 1955 in Mansfield to Francis and Dortha Crooks Schmitz. She loved doing word search puzzles and coloring books. She had a passion for collecting elephants and roosters and absolutely loved the color purple. She was a very loving and caring person who never forgot a birthday, anniversary or holiday without sending a card and personal note. She loved for her card to be your first for every occasion.

She was preceded in death by her parents.
